Irish Commercial Aircraft Update 02-05-2016: 

Tweets of the day:

@Fly_Norwegian Palma will be our 7th base in Spain and 16th in Europe: 2 aircraft, 11 destinations, and over 60 new, Spanish jobs! #flynorwegian.

@ghimlay Either @Aeromexico or @Delta would have to give up MEX-JFK service to comply with Mexican conditions on JV approval.

@ghimlay SkyWest says short term demand for 50-seaters still “very strong”, removals will slow in 2016 compared to 2015.

@JohnLStrickland Not sure why @transavia would do this as @Ryanair continues massive growth in Germany. 

@winglets747 Norwegian Air says it will employ more US-based crew than any foreign airline.
